To gauge the public’s appetite for transportation fix, ask about costs AND benefits

Wisconsinites are increasingly willing to “Just Fix It” and support a reasonable investment in transportation. This idea is counter to the narrative put forward by some who say while people may not like the condition of the roads on which they drive every day, they don’t want to pay more to fix them.

Is it possible even Foxconn isn't enough to finally get North-South Corridor finished?

For years I have read surveys conducted by national site selection magazines that regularly ask CEOs across the country to rank factors for choosing where to locate, and “access to highways” is consistently the most important or second most important factor.
